Sweet book with wonderful characters

5 stars

The writing is pretty great, the romance doesn't have a lot of time to shine but is passable nonetheless. The magic system is absolutely charming and so are the characters we meet in Nowhere house. I also appreciated that the main character is of Indian origin! The ending was a little rushed. 4.5?
